Description: Unknown Remembered Gate acknowledges the liberal arts and its roots in the basic human quest, through time and across cultures, to understand our relationship to the mysteries surrounding us. It alludes to the idea that this search leads us through our images, theories and language back to a direct experience and hopefully expanded view of the world. The installation creates an intimate outdoor place to sit, read, eat lunch etc.
